79jasper Right. But I've gotten fuel from some questionable places, no water. Lol

Phillippeterson The diesel I buy at Costco has always been high standard. I have filled up at several Costcos when the truck was down to only a gallon or two of fuel. When I drain some fuel to check for water there is none. As well, the color and clarity is better than any other fuel I have bought except for, interestingly, the fuel from HEB groceries in Texas.

amxdreamer Costco runs a VERY tight ship when it comes to fuel stations where I'm at. A company like this would not be intentionally watering down fuel or neglecting maintenance requirements.

79jasper Or..... your sensor could be bad. Lol
Maybe the area you are is less humid/has less large temp swings.

Wobblin-Goblin Interesting thread. As an owner of a 7.3L Powerstroke, I've never had to deal with WIF issues. Our older trucks are most likely less sensitive in this regard than the newer trucks, but I've also probably been fortunate with respect to where I've bought my fuel.

Costco has diesel in their Anchorage AK store and I reckon they'll have it when they open their doors in Fairbanks later this year.

I ordered from Amazon:
Same as my 7.3ís.

BTW, write down your key code.

Also, as earlier suggested, the key tumbler operates much smoother with some spray lube.

Coming home tomorrow

Well, the truck is all done being fixed up. I will pick it up tomorrow. It turns out that when I took it into the dealer, they decided based on a new fuel sample, the siphoning and draining that I did that they should only do a tank removal / clean, filter replacement and fuel line flush. Total cost would be $1075. I agreed with the understanding that the filters be returned to me and that their recommendations be written on the repair order. I would like to open the filters up and let them dry out to see if crystals form. I have a suspicion that the lot attendant that filled up the truck during the sale may have made a mistake when filling the truck with DEF.

Anyway, insurance has part of the bill and I pay my $500 deductible. I can't wait to get it back. The F150 loaner isn't bad but a Super Duty just can't be beat. Thanks to everyone for your input. You helped me more than you know. That is what this board is all about.

+1 for GEICO.
Guess what I am going to do when I pick the truck up afterwards? Yep, drain the separator. I will never buy another diesel again without that being part of the sale. I hope everyone else who buys one will do the same.

I'll let you all know how this goes. Thank you everyone.

His reply (as expected) was "Every situation is different. The information that Ford has about the water in the fuel will be taken into consideration."

With that, I decided that it's time to quit messing around with this and call Geico. The adjuster has already been here and I am dropping the truck off tomorrow for whatever repairs Ford believes the truck needs. This way, my warranty will remain intact and I will be done with this. It should only cost me $500.00.

I now have a locking Fuel cap as recommended earlier in this thread just in case it was sabotage. As far as the "single drop of water" goes, I was exaggerating.

Phillippeterson Has anybody installed a drain in their fuel tank?

Seems like a good idea.
